The days are getting longer and the sun stronger.

Spring in Cornwall can officially be announced once the Magnolia are in flower and now they are.

It is the perfect time to plan a visit to the gardens of Cornwall. In south west Cornwall they are abundant – magnolias are flowering the birds have woken up and making themselves heard.

We’ve chosen five of Cornwall’s finest for you to explore around Spring and Easter time.

Trengwainton Garden

These beautiful gardens in Madron nr Penzance are open from 14th February to 30 October (closed Friday and Saturday). Enjoy the incredible Rhododendron Macabeanum that flowered for the first time in Britain at Trengwainton.

Tremenhere Sculpture Gardens

Enjoy the exotic planting, unique sculptures, camera obscura and underground domed chamber especially built to take in the view of the sky. There are surprises around every corner! Open from 12th February. Delicious meals are served at The Kitchen with adjacent garden shop.

Lost Gardens of Heligan

If you are staying in Porthleven holiday cottages, Heligan is an hour drive away but worth a visit. These privately owned gardens have been lovingly restored with a unique story to tell. The kitchen garden and flower gardens are a sight to behold, the farm animals and bird watching boma will delight the children and the woodland walk with its towering trees add romance to the scene. Packed with activities for all from Spring to Autumn you won’t be disappointed.
